It is a remote control electric airplane made of polystyrene powered by a brushless motor and lithium-polymer batteries, the guy who made them is called Michael Connally.
he has plans to make a kit but it doesnt looks like it will happen for a long time! I asked him very very kindly for the plans but of course he said sod off lol hes onto a good thing there imo!

his email is [email protected], but he complains about having over 250 email per day to answer, isnt that a hint to hury up m8!

soz goin off topic a bit with this one.

Default Hydro Foam Boat/airplane

Guys, there are many hydrofoam copies of that boat available. In fact there is a guy making arf's and selling them as kits. The guy that originally designed it hasn't made a kit yet, but I understand he is in the process. My recommendation is to support the original designer Michael Connally and wait for his kit to be released.

I hear the copies dont work that good anyways.

There is a ton of info about this plane/boat on RCUniverse

Donít confuse compression with pinch. Sleeve Pinch is not that important contrary to popular belief. The question is how well does it seal as soon as the piston starts to close the exhaust port and if it holds compression after you roll it to top dead center.
Place a few drops of after run oil trough the top (removing plug), then place plug in place, then roll piston to top dead center and listen and look for air bubbles through exhaust port. If thereís none, then your engine still has compression, even if it has no pinch.
The fastest team motors we have, have zero pinch.
